GOODBYE KRAGHEN, QUEENIX & CABBI

Today we announce the departure of the players Kraghen and Queenix. MASONIC reached an agreement with ECSTATIC to transfer the players by immediate effect. It has been nothing but a pleasure to develop the players and the team and we are thankful for their effort under the MASONIC banner. We are excited to follow the next steps in the player’s career.

Andreas “blaq” Elversøe, CEO states that “kraghen and Queenix was for me great teammates that both taught me things on the server and outside the server and for this, I will be forever grateful. As CEO of MASONIC I am sad to see them leave at this point because of what we have built and accomplished as a team and an organization.”

MASONIC have faced the previous ECSTATIC roster on several occasions going even in victories and defeats, both online and on LAN with a notable victory for MASONIC at Gamebox Festival 2022.

blaq continues “I am proud of the team and especially how casle continuously keeps a competitive roster with results. He never looked back and is fully focused on developing the best set of players and team.” 

MASONIC coach Peter “casle” Ardenskjold, joined the club in november 2020, and have ever since pushed the performance of the club in a positive direction. He has secured 15 finals with 10 grand finals victories and 3 trophies. The club has much more to come in the upcoming season, and we are happy that casle will continue to build on his legacy with MASONIC.

The club can also announce the departure of Cabbi who decided to seek out new challenges and we are thankful for his time in MASONIC.

After the transition of blaq to CEO of MASONIC, the team fielded Cabbi in the positions of the previous IGL. “Cabbi brought in the right attitude in practice, in tournaments and in finals. He quickly shined in his new positions because of hard work and dedication. For me, it was wonderful to see him engage with his potential and I believe it suited him to be in charge of important aspects of the rounds” says blaq.

Thank you to kraghen, Queenix and Cabbi.

MASONIC wish you all the best.

MASONIC will disclose more information in the coming days regarding the CS:GO roster and development but the organization is happy to say we are thrilled with the new roster and how it turned out!

MASONIC release CS:GO academy division as of today

Today we say goodbye to the roster on the CS:GO Academy division and Head of CS:GO Academy in MASONIC. We are proud of the results and hard work put in by the players and staff during their time in MASONIC and we wish only the best for all parties.

Back in April 2021 MASONIC initiated the CS:GO Academy division together with Robert William Naur and a newly established roster of talented CS:GO players, but one year later it has been decided to pause the Academy project in the club and focus ressources else where.

I am proud on behalf of the team and the work they did. They are hardworking players with a fresh and inspiring mindset. Surely, they will advance further in the divisions of Danish Counter-Strike and prove their worth. MASONIC have to implement a new strategy for our academy efforts this summer and while I am sad to say goodbye to the team, it was necessary for both the team and club to achieve the desired results.

CEO, Andreas Elversøe

Progress to be proud of

The team was playing with the same core of Dengzoe, DemoN and tOPZ since day one, and while the team underwent several changes, the goals was always clear. To advance and improve. Starting in ESEA Open and Dust2.dk POWERLIGAEN division 3, there was no looking back when they achieved ESEA Main and POWERLIGAEN divsion 2 after just one season together.

Group picture of the first edition of the academy roster back in 2021

The most recent results was an impressive run in the playoffs of ESEA Main, almost securing a spot in ESEA Advanced with just one victory shy. In addition to this the roster showed force when they played a near perfect season in the 2nd division of POWERLIGAEN with only one loss out of 22 games and securing a spot in the 1st division of POWERLIGAEN.

The future is now

The roster will continue working together and actively seek a new fifth player to further improve and rise in the ranks of Danish counter-strike. The team will consist of Dengzoe, DemoN, tOPZ and the newest talent logz. If you have questions or curious about the team and roster, please reach out to Dengzoe on twitter.

You will find the team playing ESEA Main and the 1st division of POWERLIGAEN going forward. With the amount of skill already in the roster, no doubt they will challenge for further advancement.

MASONIC wishes only the best for the team going forward and thank you for your effort!
